SYMPOSIUM ON EVIDENCE BASED TEACHING IN YOUR BIOMOLECULAR CLASSROOM: CATALYSING STUDENT ENGAGEMENT
University of Minho, Campus de Gualtar, Braga, Portugal
17 and 18 November 2021
Poor teaching can cause great harm. Recent research on the impact of teaching on student learning illuminates clearly what effective teaching looks like. We can now expose our students to scientific teaching approaches.
You are invited to attend the "Joint FEBS/SPB/UMinho Symposium on Evidence Based Teaching in Your Biomolecular Classroom: Catalysing Student Engagement”: The event is organised jointly by the Centre IDEA-UMinho, the Portuguese Biochemical Society (SPB) and the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) and we expect to give you an update of scientific approaches to impact the learning of your students. The program includes keynote lectures on contemporary and scholar teaching, and a buffet of workshops to allow discussion of implementation issues.
We will be privileged to interact with bioscientists who have also accumulated an international reputation for scholarship in the education of biosciences: Erin Dolan (University of Georgia, USA), Gabriel Hornink (Universidade Federal de Alfenas, Brazil), Kimberly Tanner (San Francisco State University, USA) and Stephen Rutherford (Cardiff University, UK).
If you are somehow involved in teaching of biosciences, this is a unique not to miss opportunity. The programme targets academic staff and post-graduate students with interest in teaching and learning and in scholarship approaches to collect evidence about the impact of teaching and learning.
See you on 17 and 18 November!
